I am so thankful for this program! I started it because I needed to make some changes in my life since I was having some of the same health problems my mother had…

So many things I already knew and had ignored for years. Now I’m on a healthy path and am amazed by how quickly my body has adjusted to the changes, as well the pounds I’ve shed and how energized I feel.

Are You Ready to Take the Next Step
on Your Wellness Journey?

James Colquhoun from Food Matters Institute

Studying nutrition changed my life. It helped me cut through the confusion of paleo, veganism, plant-based, intermittent fasting, and more to experience lasting energy, vitality, and improved immunity.

It gave me the tools and knowledge to help heal my father, successfully getting him off six medications, losing over 50lbs, and completely recovering his life and health. Being a part of this transformation also gave me the inspiration and confidence to start Food Matters.

This laid the groundwork for starting an online movement that has inspired millions worldwide.

Unfortunately, we aren't taught about real nutrition in school. We have a medical profession that is rarely trained to use food as medicine, and the multi-billion dollar fast-food and pharmaceutical industries thrive on misleading consumers.

Now it's time to take our power back!

James Colquhoun

Co-Founder of Food Matters and The Food Matters Institute

I took the program because I had a lot of gut issues and “Dr. Google” was just confusing me. What I got was education in overall health and wellbeing, tools to heal my belly for good, and so much more. I’m 57 and feel better than I did at 27.

Here’s What Our Students Have to Say

You can't put a price on health, and there is nothing more empowering than having the knowledge to be able to help yourself and your loved ones if the need arises.

Michelle Pedula - Ontario, Canada
Founder of Harvest & Wellness

Michelle Pedula
Michelle Pedula

Taking the course changed my life in so many ways. In the past, I was always confused about what to eat or not to eat. I never understood what was healthy and what wasn't healthy and why. The wellness world can be a very confusing place. Thanks to the course I now have healthier habits in my own personal life.
Every module of the course contains so much knowledge laid out in a very easy-to-follow program. Plus, you get to be part of a wonderful community of other students and graduates on the same journey. The course is an investment and it pays itself back with fewer sick days and medicine you would be buying. That is what happened to me, I rarely ever get sick now from applying everything I learned in the course, and I am the healthiest I've ever been.

Understanding the fundamentals of wholesome nutrition, superfoods, gut health, hormones, detoxing, and how to heal with food has given me the confidence to support my clients on their journey to better wellbeing.

I have been following Food Matters for years, soaking up all of their wisdom to integrate into my own life and wellness routines. When I was searching for a program to study, I knew I could trust and gain so much value from studying with Food Matters. Learning from some of the world's greatest wellness experts has had a great impact on both my own wellbeing and my businesses.

Not only do I now know what to eat, when to eat, and where to source the food from, but I also know how to eat with more flexibility.

Nancy Timmins - Ontario, Canada
Founder of Follow the Jade Rabbit- Health & Fitness Coaching

Nancy Timmins
Nancy Timmins

I wanted to learn more about food and nutrition for healing, detoxification, to learn how to better serve clients' needs, and to hear from this panel of experts and researchers first-hand. Not only do I now know what to eat, when to eat, and where to source the food from, but I also know how to eat with more flexibility. I am even more mindful of my daily decisions when it comes to our environment and what we expose ourselves to whether that be food, products that we apply to our skin, electromagnetic fields, herbs & spices, and superfoods.

Take a Look Inside the Program

We believe we've created the world's best (and most beautiful), online nutrition certification program. But don't just take our word for it. Watch the video below featuring our Student Advisor & In House Nutritionist, Kayla, to see just how easy it is to navigate through the program.

Share Your Passion for Nutrition with Others

More than ever before, millions of people worldwide are suffering from stress, anxiety, and poor health. And they’re desperately searching for answers.

This problem has opened up a massive opportunity for those who have studied nutrition and understand how to help educate others on taking the steps forward to transform their health and heal.

According to the Global Wellness Institute, the Health and Wellness industry is a $4.2 trillion dollar market, and it’s only expected to keep growing. As the shortage of primary caregivers continues to grow, the employment opportunities in the field of health education is projected to grow by 17% between 2020 and 2023 (Labor Bureau of Stats).

After completing the Food Matters Nutrition Certification Program, there’s a good chance you won’t want to keep this life-saving message to yourself. And when you graduate, you’ll be qualified to share this message with the world. Whether you're inspired to write a recipe book, start a blog, consult one-on-one with clients, or even make films… the possibilities will be endless!

This training will give you the knowledge and tools to transform the health and lives of others.

WE'RE COMMITTED TO HELPING YOU HELP YOURSELF. WE BELIEVE THAT YOUR BODY IS WORTHY OF GOOD CARE AND THAT NO ONE IS MORE SUITABLY QUALIFIED TO CARE FOR IT THAN YOURSELF.

We created the Food Matters Nutrition Certification Program from the growing need for people to heal themselves (or a loved one) naturally.

We've spent the last 15 years studying nutrition and interviewing experts in food, natural medicine, and mind-body therapies to uncover what's transforming lives today. We helped my father heal from depression chronic fatigue and come off six prescription medicines with this information, and it's only becoming more powerful. The method of healing and good health hasn't changed.

We believe that everyone deserves the right to good health, prosperity, and happiness. We're just making it a little bit easier for you to access.

We can't wait to welcome you to the Food Matters Nutrition Certification Program.

In good health,

When I started the Program, I was doing so to heal my own chronic illness. I was blown away by the amount of information that was provided and have discovered so many ways to improve my health. One thing that has surprised me the most is where my studies have taken me! I have used the knowledge I have gained to create Chronic Illness Healing Workbooks for mental and physical health, and I hope to help and inspire others struggling with their health to make changes and see improvements.

I studied medicine in the 1980s and took 36 courses until I graduated, but none of it was about nutrition. It was not by chance but by purpose. As we know, often behind governments (including universities and medical schools) are the big pharmaceutical companies trying to promote their poisons. I got invaluable knowledge from this course, much of which I assimilated immediately... It helped me reinforce the knowledge I already had and also added some extremely important new information so that I could heal myself and my loved ones with natural methods. The study does not stop here. In fact, now it begins...

For anyone thinking about this but feeling hesitant, I took the leap last November and joined the first ever class. Next to being a mother, this is the best thing I’ve ever done in my life (and I have a fulfilling life!) But the Food Matters Nutrition Coach journey is OUTSTANDING and we learn so much, all the time. I rave about this program to everyone I meet.

To the Food Matters Team and especially Laurentine and James - thank you for making this program possible!  I’ve learned so much and will continue to explore all the additional resources within each module. I loved every minute! Now onto the Bonus Module. 😊 💜

When I started the Food Matters Nutrition Certification Program, I was doing so to heal my own chronic illness. I was blown away with the amount of information that was provided and have discovered so many ways to improve my health. I love the printed workbook and find studying from reading very helpful. One thing that has surprised me the most is where my studies have taken me! I have used the knowledge I have gained to create Chronic Illness Healing Workbooks, for mental and physical health. I hope to help and inspire others struggling with their health to make changes and see improvements. I’m so grateful I decided to take the course and highly recommend it to everyone!

I loved every minute of the training, and am grateful for the support of the Food Matters tribe: the awesome, responsive staff, and the savvy, passionate students. The experience was like a fire hose of information, so I'm really happy that all of the course materials are available for me to go back and review again and again. All of the Resources at the end of each module are also really helpful. I'm eager now to jump into the Bonuses and learn how to parlay my newfound knowledge into a business so I can help others live their healthiest, most vibrant lives possible. Thank you!!!

I'm so pleased to have participated in, and finished this wonderful course! It took a bit longer than I initially planned, however as I began each module it seemed very timely with family members' health issues. I thoroughly enjoyed sharing what I learned and hope/plan to do more of this in the future. Thank you so much! With appreciation to everyone involved in the Food Matters Program.

After losing my job during the pandemic, I took the Food Matters Nutrition Certification Program to transition to a new career by following my passion in helping mums create better health for their family. In your program, you not only provided your students with the education, but you’ve also provided us with the community and a way to get paid through your referral program. It feels amazing (yet surreal) to share what I love, make an impact and get paid. Thank you so much James, Laurentine and everyone at the Food Matters Team, you’ve changed my life. I love this program so much that I would share it with everyone I know.

I look forward to more magnificence from Food Matters!

I am thrilled to see my name on the certificate! This has been such a rewarding experience and a game changer! I am excited to apply this knowledge in my daily life. Some of it I have already started like participating in the gluten free challenge (feeling great about that too). I recommend this course to everyone who follows Food Matters! Thank you to the FM team! I absolutely love you guys.

The Food Matters Nutrition Certification Program is recognized by the International Approval and Registration Centre (IARC), and is an approved training provider with the International Institute for Complementary Therapists (IICT). This means our graduates qualify for membership and insurance through IICT under the Nutrition Consultant modality.

The content within this program doesn't adhere to any one specific diet or way of eating, and this is because we believe in bio-individuality and that there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to nutrition and health.
The program emphasizes consuming a primarily plant-based diet because there is strong evidence for the benefits of consuming a large variety of plant-based foods.
There is content discussing how to ethically include quality animal products in your diet for those who choose to (or for those who find themselves coaching clients who choose to).

Ultimately we focus on giving students a deep understanding of the foundations required for optimal health and nutrition and the science behind food, nutrition, and many of the key systems in the body.
